Allergy Drops Houston
Allergy Shots Houston
Your shot treatment will vary depending on what you’re allergic too. An allergy test is required before we begin allergy injection treatment.
At the start of allergy shots, patients are typically asked to come in 1-3 times per week based on Allergy Nurse, Doctor and PA recommendations. Frequency of shots will depend on history of anaphylaxis, large reactions with previous injections and what you’re allergic to.
Once you’ve met certain requirements, your frequency of shots will decrease. Your shots continue to decrease through treatment until your allergy treatment is complete.
You and your doctor will work together to determine the best allergy treatment for you. It’s important to consider your own commitment to allergy treatment: will coming into the office or taking allergy drops work better for your schedule and lifestyle?

What Is Allergy Immunotherapy?
After an allergy test is complete and we find out what you are allergic to, we can begin allergy immunotherapy. Allergy immunotherapy is a long term allergy treatment that helps decrease the body’s allergic response to seasonal allergens. By serving up regular, tiny doses of the things you are allergic to in shot, drop or pill form you can build up your body’s immunity to these things. Essentially you’re training your body to be less sensitive to the things it finds offensive such as grass and tree pollen.
Seasonal allergies (also known as allergic rhinitis) usually requires ongoing treatments including medications, nasal rinses and nasal sprays. Immunotherapy including allergy shots and sublingual drops improve your tolerance to airborne allergens over a period of time.
While allergy medications get less effective over time, shots and drops tend to get more effective over time. Immunotherapy helps to desensitize and provide symptomatic relief for patients with allergic rhinitis and asthma.
